Judith, Community Advocate at Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest, was recently awarded The Audre Lorde Emerging Leader Award from the San Diego Coalition for Reproductive Justice. This award honors a young individual who has shown a deep commitment to furthering reproductive justice in San Diego County and beyond. It is given to members of the community who are working to ensure all people can make decisions around if and when to start a family, and that they have access to the resources they need to raise families in safe environments.

Judith is the daughter of two U.S. Veterans, an SDSU Alumni, and Community Organizer in the San Diego community. Through her advocacy, she has been able to propose new social programs for San Diego County and is actively working alongside the Invest in San Diego Families Coalition to pass new policies that promote health equity. 

She currently works as an Organizer for Planned Parenthood Pacific Southwest, serves as the Vice Chair for Planned Parenthood’s national Volunteer Program PPNOVA, and the Secretary for BNew Youth Development Corporation.

Judith was nominated for this award because of her work advocating for social programs, promoting health equity, and her commitment to reproductive justice. She has been a strong champion for increasing access to doula services for Black birthing people, who face high rates of adverse birth outcomes in the United States, and was vital in championing a successful initiative to increase access to no-cost menstrual hygiene products in San Diego County. 

We are so proud to have Judith on our team and are grateful for her leadership and her meaningful work in the community.
